Martijn Comes - Lostitude [pan031]


Published August 8, 2008


Dutch composer Martijn Comes waxes poetic about life and love.


Notes

a dream where rainbows collided
illuminating, ascendant
over the wide open ridges of the city
grit and parks
spacious dark
awakened time-frame
there was nothing in between
but resting on the borderline
of interstellar madness


--

These pieces were composed in 2006 while traveling throughout Canada, mainly in Montreal and Toronto. They were mainly inspired by life and love, but quite influenced by Aleister Crowley, Spacemen 3, Twine, and Herman Hesse.

Martijn Comes was born 1979 in Roermond, Netherlands. He is a sound artist, composer, living in the Hague, Netherlands. His first album "Dominion" was released January 2008 on Clinical Archives:

Subject: review from Disquiet

For the second time this week, a long dependable but also relatively quiet netlabel has released something of note. Just yesterday it was Panospria, an accomplished netlabel that put out its first sets of freely downloadable music back in February 2004, but which this year has thus far posted only three releases. The most recent is Martijn Comes’s Lostitude. One highlight is a track titled after the soundtrack composer Jack Nitzsche, where pizzicato strings blur into a rough cluster of white noise that bring to mind the anarchic guitar symphonies of Glenn Branca.

Rough sounds filtered into an uneasy yet still beautiful quietude are a common refrain on Lostitude, but the album is anything but samey. On "LCD Waterfall", a thick column of droning turmoil makes significant modulations over the course of its eight minutes, taking on the feel of a Olivier Messiaen organ solo. And where “LCD Waterfall” moans, a track titled “The Rainbow Eater” glistens with chiming rounds of notes, like some 21st-century carillon heard amid luxurious held tones against a pinprick beat.
